I plan to order some Cordura to make a full strength one now.
Are Fishing Kayaks Too Expensive?
Trace the shape of your kayak cockpit with paper and pencil.
Pull the cords to tighten and tie securely, especially when storing your boat outside.
This forms a sleeve for the shock cord.
So, lay the fabric good side down over the cockpit so markings stay inside.
Materials I decided to use fabric I had on hand from my last business.
I love the self-reliance needed at times for the outdoors.
Might put some grommets on the holes where the shock cord comes through.
Or you can use just about anything if you don't want the cover to be waterproof.
Pin or tape the pattern you created in Step One to the fabric that you will be making the cover out of.
